Who: All club members and license classes welcome

All members are welcome however those with a General license are especially encouraged to attend.

Optional: bring your own HF radio, microphone and the radio’s manual. We’ll try to use it to get on the air. POTA experienced members will provide help you might need to further your understanding of your own radio. In addition, batteries, antennas, turners, other HF radios, etc. will be provided.

Club members can participate in this POTA activity in two ways:

1. Operate on the air as an “activator” at the park using call sign W1SYE.

2. Operate from home and contact W1SYE as a “hunter” on the day of the event. Activators are listed on the following POTA web site:

Call the W1SYE activators!

Club members are encouraged to come out to our activation to share knowledge or learn about portable setups and operations, different modes of operation (CW, phone, digital), how to manage/work pileups, and even operate HF bands with a control operator in a relaxed environment.

Ft. Adams is in Newport. We will setup on the bluff behind the Eisenhower House. Turn left as soon as you enter the park.
